"Chris Kyle is known for his melodic songs, psychedelic masterpieces that bring listeners a sonically explorative approach to songwriting. His music is refreshing and nostalgic at the same time, paired with lyrics that are well-written and filled with adventurous melodies." - NY Weekly
Chris Kyle is a guitarist as well as a songwriter, producer and a multi instrumentalist.
After many years of playing in projects and bands either being a founding member of or as a side musician (Woof Woof, Lip Talk, Cautious Clay, Secret Machines, Sean Rowe) Chris's debut album as an artist, "Falling in Circles'' was released in 2020. For fans of Kurt Vile, Cass McCombs or George Harrison, the album might find a home with its melodic and at times compositionally adventurous style, guitars being forward in the arrangements.
"containing nine masterful songs, all of which have captured the heart and soul of its audience. Among the songs on the album was his first single, “Summer Nights,” a song delivered in an easy-going nature and captures the mood of the long hazy summer days. The lyrics tackle the boundary separating people from their surroundings and how it is to love from a distance. The album also contained his song “Sun Star,” produced in collaboration with experimental artist, Lip Talk. Recorded in Figure 8 in Brooklyn, NY, the album eventually made its way to listeners across the globe." - NY Weekly.
Next came Stardust EP, released July 26th 2022. Written, recorded, produced and all instruments played by Chris Kyle in upstate NY.
Stardust has a playful sound mixing psychedelia and melodicism, fuzzy phased out guitar sounds weren't shied away from.
"Chris Kyle’s single “Space Flower” from his latest EP Stardust conveys a sense of infinite drift and flow with drawn out guitar work and his own hazy, slightly echoing vocals. The echoing riffs and use of musical space makes you feel like you’re hanging out there beyond the stratosphere with Jimi Hendrix and Bowie. Especially in the context of the music video in which a space bee lands on the technological space flower satellite after an astronaut observes the tranquil beauty of the earth from orbit. The languidly psychedelic song is an example of how Kyle, a guitarist in brilliantly eclectic R&B act Cautious Clay, is able to experiment outside his usual mode of songwriting with weaving together styles to create something unique and compelling and in this case playful music in which it’s easy to get lost for a few minutes." - Queen City Sound
Since 2018 Chris has kept a busy touring schedule as guitarist for Cautious Clay.
Chris is proud to be endorsed by Harmony Guitars.
